Josh’s Lifelog for 2008-09-29

  • Whuh? My iGoogle home page reset itself – my Mark Frauenfelder theme is gone, as are all of my gadgets. *sigh* #
  • Oh. Nevermind. I was looking at my “recommendations” tab, instead of my “Home” tab. I bet Gabe clicked it when I wasn’t looking. πŸ™‚ #
  • Dragged my Asus R2H UMPC out of mothballs to play with this week. Restoring it to factory XP tablet edition. It’s big and heavy! #
  • If you’re interested in keeping up on the US economy, I can’t recommend NPR’s @PlanetMoney highly enough: http://npr.org/planetmoney #
  • Guess what? There’s some Ignite Portland 4 news that’s MOMENTS away from breaking. Stay tuned! πŸ™‚ #
  • That Ignite Portland 4 news? Submissions are now open! Submit your talk ideas now, until Oct. 14. http://www.igniteportland.com. Yay! πŸ™‚ #
  • And I’m having some trouble getting to igniteportland.com right now – 500 errors. You all killed the site with your enthusiasm! Keep trying. #
  • @Jmartens Argh! I’m sorry. I swear, we’ll check with you when planning the date/time for Ignite Portland 5! πŸ™‚ #
  • @peat and others – @selenamarie is fixing the igniteportland.com server issue. Should be back on its feet soon! #
  • Hey, if someone wants to submit an @igniteportland 4 talk on what the heck is happening to our economy, I bet it would be popular… πŸ˜‰ #
  • @KGWNewsChannel8 joins twitter, limits themsleves to 125 characters per tweet by picking a really long handle/username. πŸ™‚ #
  • Wow. Three really great Ignite Portland 4 talk ideas already submitted. I can’t wait to see what you all come up with! I LOVE your ideas! πŸ™‚ #
  • Just put the kids to bed. @rachelbancroft at calligraphy class. I’m bored, reading interwebs, and actually answering telemarketer calls. πŸ™‚ #
  • In case anyone was wondering, here’s exactly who voted how on the bailout bill in Congress: http://tinyurl.com/45k822 #
  • @shashib Drop me an email? jabancroft at gmail. Would be happy to give some pointers on starting an Ignite in your town! πŸ™‚ #
  • @znmeb Yeah, we’ll all be living in whatever the aftermath is by then. Happy holidays! πŸ™‚ #
  • In case you’re wondering why the description on that bill doesn’t make sense, Ars says it’s because they “amended” another bill. YMMV. #
